To celebrate the launch of our new iPhone Live! Podcast, the iPhone blog is revving up yet another contest! What is it and how does it work?
Every week, on both the iPhone Live! and Phone different Podcasts, we here at TiPb will each be choosing our favorite iPhone accessories (courtesy of the TiPb iPhone store!), and adding them to the prize pack.
How to Enter
Each week, we'll give you new chance to enter. It might be joining us on a social network, sending us a tweet, replying to a forum thread, etc. Listen to our podcasts (or check out the show notes) to find out the entry method for that week. Do it.
At the end of the week, we'll pick a qualifier from everyone who successfully entered that week. Each qualifier will receive a 15% off coupon for the iPhone blog store, and be entered in our grand prize drawing.
Enter as many weeks as you like (though only 1 entry will be counted each week!). When we have all our qualifiers, we'll pull a name out at random and they'll win our Grand Prize: The Ultimate iPhone Accessory Pack!
We already told you about the UK banning Apple's "just the internet" ad, and why they were wrong. Well, the BBC is reporting yet another Apple iPhone 3G television ad has just been yanked off the UK airwaves by the British government's advertising standards watchdog group. Why? For exaggerating the iPhone 3G's speed.
I know Dieter hearts 1Password and it's probably the first thing I load up any time I install -- or re-install -- a Mac. They've got a great FREE iPhone app, but you really need the big desktop brother to get the full functionality, which includes Keychain password filling integrated right into any Mac browser, as well as wallet storage, and a personal favorite -- super-strong pseudo-random password generation.
Street-View is probably the single most visually impressive feature in iPhone OS 2.2 -- you can almost hear the next iPhone TV ad being revved up with it already! Problem is, it's almost hidden away like an easter egg. If you're still having trouble finding it, The iPhone Lens wants you to know you're not alone. More than that, they've set up a handy how-to to get you up and viewing streets asap.
Since you can't buy an iPhone 3G without signing up for an AT&T (or insert international carrier) contract, it kind of destroys the potential of giving an iPhone as a gift (cramming a whole kiosk into gift box would be killer!). So, what to do, what to do? TUAW says, Apple to the rescue!
It's not very often that you get to see Steve Wozniak in a interview. Well the iPhone Dev Team found this gem of an interview and posted it for all to see. Woz speaks up on Steve Jobs, Apple, hackers, and most importantly the iPhone! I'll stop talking... watch the video if you have not done so already!
Just a reminder, folks, we kick off the next iPhone Live! tonight (Wednesday, Nov. 26) at 8pm EST/5pm PST. (We'll actually start broadcasting a little earlier tonight, if we can, so you folks can share in the pre-show with us!)
Topic, of course, will be iPhone OS 2.2, and your questions! Leave them in the comments below, on Twitter @theiphoneblog, or chat live with us tonight!
I loved Palm devices and used them as my "main brain" from the Palm V all the way to the Palm 680, before transitioning to the first iPhone. But here's the thing, I don't feel like I left Palm -- I feel like they left me. Will the Palm Treo Pro be enough to lure me back?
Fair warning: About 1 minute of this preview is done "Zero Punctuation" style (without the salty language, of course!). Apologies to Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw and everyone at the Escapist for the poor (very poor!) parody, and to our readers... er... viewers, but it had to be done!
The forums have been on fire lately due to Apple dropping the 2.2 firmware recently. So with that in mind we are going to start off with a thread asking is the 2.2 Firmware a Success?. Personally I could not be happier with the stability that the latest firmware has brought!
The Lie Detector App claims that it can detect when a person is lying, 100% of the time I was unsuccessful in getting the app to work. When you open the app it tells you to input a few things about the person that is being questioned. And in the last blank, you enter the question you want to see if the person is lying about.

Apple has begun sending out notices about their annual "Black Friday" sale, so named because it's theoretically a shopping day so monumental it tips the retail balances out of the red (losing money) and into the black (making profit). Years past have seen $100 off MacBooks, for example, though rumors this year suggest Apple might be more aggressive with their sale.
Cyber Monday, the trendy follow-up where people have mulled over everything they didn't buy on Black Friday and make use of once-were-faster office internet connections to order stuff online, is typically ignored by Apple, so those wanting even a little savings should definitely not miss out Friday.
